Rain radar does not load correctly. Map sections are missing. (Clarification update: I am referring to a bug in the app, not a problem with coverage or data sources. The radar clearly loads in grid images, and some are sporadically missing. At different zoom levels, different blocks become visible. It is not reliable enough to know whether it is a clear sky or if it is just not loading correctly.)

Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you like the new release of the app. We have also added your Radar coverage (map layer showing optimal coverage) + radar planned outages are our request list.

Still has all the info as the old app albeit laid out differently, but where the old app loaded instantly the new version takes around 10-15seconds to load. It mighnt seem like much but its a huge step backwards to what it was. The popup for rain radar is annoying amd manages to cover future temps when you load up forcing you to scroll instead of seeing everything on one page. It needs to be a seperate window like it used to be. I think ill be looking for another app now.

Thank you for the feedback regarding your experience. The previous release was built in 2016 and we've had to implement this update to meet evolving technology requirements. This release has been developed to improve overall user experience and was guided by community engagement and customer feedback.

Best of all the weather apps. Heaps of information, regularly updated. One problem is this app frequently fails to detect the internet connection, even though the connection is up & running and all other apps have no problems with it. This app flags a "No internet connection" fault from which will not recover. Device must be re-started to get the app working again. BOM has been informed of this many times over many months but has done nothing to fix this fault.
